The Syrinx student newspaper won a $1500 Campus Equipment Grant from the California Press Foundation. The staff will use the grant to purchase a DSLR camera for their newsroom.
Syrinx editors applied for the grant in April 2018 with the endorsement of the Editor of the Fresno Bee, Joe Kieta. Kieta visited FPU on Monday on behalf of the California Press Foundation to present the $1500 check to Editor-in-Chief Leo Loera.
Correction: The article “Quesadilla Gorilla whitens Mexican cuisine” (page 14) has been edited for stylistic, grammatical and factual errors. The original article incorrectly identified the cultural background of the restaurant owners.
